"A Day Without an Immigrant" May 1, 2006
My grandfather was an illegal alien. He came to the United States around 1915 to find a new life. He gained access through a forged passport. He worked hard, married, and over the next sixty years built an amazing heritage and lineage. His offspring have fought in wars, paid taxes, educated the young, built corporations, worked for their communities, and created amazing works of all sorts.Today, immigrants across the United States marched to remind our country, that they are an integral part of our society, culture, and economy - whether they are documented or not. They are here to contribute, strive, and to be a part of the continuing narrative of our country.This video captures a small part of the rally at Union Square in New York City.
